My schedule allowed me to go to my club’s track workout tonight for the first time in a month. After the past few weeks of distance and racing, the legs felt beat up. So on the 8th straight day of 80+ temps and high humidity, what more fun than a 20 minute tempo run on the track. I had the option of doing some 400 meter intervals, but felt that the tempo run would better prepare me for the Rochester Half Marathon in 2 weeks.
I managed a little under 6 minute/mile pace for those 20 minutes, and it was grueling getting the legs going at a steady state. All in all, a good workout, a good day. 8 miles altogether.
